This is a call to action for all women. It is time to empower our health and get healthy. Nobody else is going to do it for us…we have to take control and get into a healthier routine for LIFE! Let’s get FIRED UP Ladies!!
According to this month’s Nutrition Action Newsletter, 1 in 9 Canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer…that is 24, 400 in 2014 alone. 5000 of us will die of breast cancer in 2014. If that doesn’t shock you then read on…breast cancer is the number one cancer killer of women, followed a distant second by lung cancer. Lung cancer has well known risk factors…not so of breast cancer, which is striking women of all ages, races, socioeconomic status and across all other boundaries.
We all know someone who has fought or died of this dreaded disease. I know several women within 10 years of my age…some older, some younger, who have DIED!!! leaving young kids without their mom. This is an epidemic among women and a women’s issue that is decimating our friends and family.
Walter Willet from Harvard University says that we know how to protect women from breast cancer and these center on diet and lifestyle. To summarize, diet…get rid of the carbs and completely ditch sugar. Insulin, which is a perfectly natural hormone, is secreted in response to sugar and causes our cells to store sugar for later use. The problem is, that later never comes, and we end up with our cells bursting with excess fuel stores. The other problem is that insulin also feeds breast cancer cells and causes them to proliferate and grow.
Another risk factor is body fat. I know, touchy subject, and no women in her right mind wants to be reminded of that muffin top…but excess body fat, even 10 pounds, is a known risk factor for breast cancer. Body fat makes estrogen…again, a perfectly natural hormone, but in the quantities that we are exposed to from body fat, many women are “estrogen dominant” and estrogen FEEDS breast cancer. This is one reason that men are also getting “hormone-dependent” cancer…their body fat also secretes estrogen (hence the man boobs) and estrogen feeds cancer.
The third and last risk factor that I wanted to tell you about from this latest research from Harvard University is xeno-estrogens. These estrogen-like chemicals in the environment are found in all of our body fat and again, estrogen-like substances also feed breast cancer. You increase your exposure from plastics…water bottles, plastic lined cans, plastic lined coffee cups…toxic, toxic, toxic.
If you want to get serious about cleansing out those toxins and getting off the carbs, then you NEED to see me. I am serious. I have been on Isagenix for 6 months now, and have lost 30 pounds of weight. I am running again, I am doing a 10K (the first one in 6 years) in November, and I feel 10 years younger. The foundation of Isagenix is cleansing and nourishment. My business model is clear. Empower people to get healthy…NOW… I share many things with women and men and share the tools to get healthy, stay healthy and if they want, earn a residual income with Isagenix so they can enjoy their family time in financial freedom. It is true…see the videos on my blog page…people get so healthy on Isagenix because it is a system to plug into and the products are of the finest quality.
Now, most people aren’t thrilled with the idea of giving up their beloved Pumpkin Spice Latte because of the whopping 50grams of sugar in it!!! Did you know that your daily should be no more than 30grams…look it up on the Heart and Stroke Foundation Website! This is not some crunchy granola talking head here. Sugar…in a round about way and a direct way, FEEDS TUMORS! I do Isagenix. Some days are harder, some days are easy, but now I like the look of myself in photos. I don’t cringe. I think…damn…I look pretty good…and I know that I am doing all I can to prevent disease. I cleanse, I re-nourish, and I teach others to do the same. I do it for my family, like I do so many other things in life. I look after them and their health too. What better gift than to give them their mom in these years that we have left, a healthy, happy mom.
There is no magic pill, ladies! Taxol derivatives work as chemotherapy because they block estrogen receptors. We have too much estrogen! Come with me! Let’s do this…let’s lose the weight and give ourselves a fighting chance!
